Default Twist out failure

I am officially 100 percent natural and I have curl pattern between 4a and 4b. In addition, my hair absorbs water quickly.This week I tried a twist out on my hair. However, it was a disaster because it was dry and not defined. I used shea mositure enhancing smoothie. I wanted to know what product should I used to have a better twist out?

Try doing your twists in the shower or with a water bottle on hand. Sometimes the way you detangle(brush,comb, fingers), the state of your hair when you apply products(wet, damp,dry), and the type and amount of styler(gel, cream) can effect your results. Try experimenting more.
I personally do mine on wet hair, finger detangling only, and with only an oil and gel if I want it defined and shiny and soft. For a more fluffy look I use a cream based styler instead of gel.

an oil rinse step might help in addition to using
Curls passion fruit curl control paste as the all over styling product
3B, fine, normal porosity, low density, biracial, BSL
Conditioner: many
Co-Wash: $ store cream rinse
Leave in Products: coconut milk & coconut oil

You might need to use a styling product as well as the Smoothie and don't forget to seal with an oil. Also, don't take out the twists until your hair is 100% dry.
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!
